  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • If desired, blend one cup of oats and make oat flour. This isn't necessary, I like it better though.

  • Store leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • Cookies will keep for up to three days at room temperature or up to three months in the freezer.
  • You can substitute raisins, dried cranberries, or other kinds of nuts for the walnuts. Or you can add more chocolate chips!
